WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

For guys, taking a girl out on a date can be a lot of pressure. A guy needs to make sure he makes a good impression so there will be another date in the near future. From a girl’s perspective, I can honestly say that the first thing the ladies notice is what the guy is wearing. If he is dressed well, it will make a great first impression and it will start the date off on a good note. A positive start to a date helps relieve some of the pressure a guy might feel. This Fashionisto shows us a great example of a perfect outfit for date night.

A pair of khakis is always a great choice because you can dress them up or dress them down. Khakis can be worn with a dress shirt and tie for a five-star restaurant or with a polo suitable for a more casual atmosphere. It’s the most versatile pant a guy can wear and this Fashionisto has paired his khakis with a green checked button-down from Polo Ralph Lauren. The button-down is sophisticated but the green checked pattern makes it fun at the same time. The Lauren Ralph Lauren peacoat he is wearing over the button-down is a smart choice for outerwear given the current weather. The peacoat, paired with the other elements of his outfit, help this Fashionisto achieve a very mature look.

Finally, the Marc Jacobs watch is the icing on the cake. It’s a small detail that makes such a big statement. Adding a sleek accessory like this watch says a lot about a guy. It shows that he went the extra mile to look put together, and it also shows that he isn’t too flashy but he likes to be taken seriously. It’s clear this Fashionisto has an eye for style and he’s ready for a fun night out with someone special.

One Simple Change: This look could be perfect for many occasions. Say you have to be at your internship the next day and you want to wear the same outfit. Just replace the Sperry Top-Sider boots with a pair of loafers, tuck in the shirt and you have a professional look perfect for the office.
